Music Monday – Happy Birthday Bruno

Posted by on Mon, October 8th, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Today we celebrate the 27th birthday of American singer-songwriter, Bruno Mars.  Raised in Honolulu, Hawaii by a family of musicians, Mars began making music at a young age.  He performed in various musical venues in his hometown throughout his childhood.  He graduated from high school and then moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue a musical career, and boy did his career take off!  Mars was nominated for seven Grammys at the 53rd Grammy Awards, winning Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for one of my favorites, “Just the Way You Are”.

Happy Birthday, Bruno!
